Active Teaching and Learning
The universalisation of Lower Secondary Education (LSE) is an important aim in the ESDP 2001-2010, and in the Education Law of 2005. LSE is also one of the target groups of the National ‘Education for All’ Action plan 2003-2015.
In line with MOET’s main strategies to improve the quality of education, for the period of 2008-2013, VVOB will concentrate on capacity building at the level of educational management, teacher training and social participation to education, especially through Active Teaching and Learning (ATL) methodologies by means of Environmental Education (EE) and Information and Communication Technologies (ICT). EE and ICT are excellent agents to facilitate ATL.
Indirectly, the VVOB programme will also contribute to the development of the free percentage of the curriculum.
Specific objective (2011-2013)
Departments of Education and Training, Teacher Training Institutes and Mass Organisations of 5 provinces have the capacity to jointly promote and support the use and institutionalization of ATL in LSE in view of improving the quality of education within the framework of the CFS movement
- DOET supports the use of ATL at provincial, district and school level.
- TTI are delivering teachers that can apply ATL (in EE and other subjects including ICT for teaching and learning).
